Shoutbox update latency problems -
It seems when sitting on the main http://ddtank.aeriagames.com/
page for a respectable amount of time, the constant updating (Whether new info or not) of the Shoutbox ultimatly bogs down the games performance and creates intense lag.
It seems I summized it above.
Steps to Reproduce: (make sure its short and simple)
1. Begin playing game
2. Continue for 30 minutes+ until lag begins.
3. Once it begins, the game becomes intensely slow.
The lag is as expected, a slow processing of the game that creates a choppy and freezing-like state when actions attempt to occur. It progresses as you spend more time on the browser page.
Simply, no lag.
N/A, game function mechanic that cannot be SS'd.
To prevent lag from continueing, I may right click, and "refresh" the shoutbox, or refresh the page.
OS: Windows Vista
Browser: Explorer 7 (I think?)
Considerably fast computer, enough so to be the first one loaded every DDT game. =)
This occurs on every page the shoutbox is located on, not just the game. I feel it may just be me though, but I consistantly witness players complaining of abrupt lag, which thus sounds like the symptoms of what I experience.
